Active Cases at Vassar

Historical data since Aug. 17, 2020.


Testing Strategy
We required a pre-arrival negative COVID-19 PCR test result within 7 days of move-in; students were tested in the first two days of arrival, and then 5-7 days later, and again 14 days later. Periodicity of subsequent testing may be every two weeks or monthly, or more often, depending on campus and community epidemiologic data at that time.
Lag Time
Current lag time is generally 24 to 48 hours, with some exceptions of 72 hours.
Test results reflect Vassar-administered diagnostic tests.
“Cases” reflect anyone with a positive diagnostic test result.
Active Cases
“Active Cases” reflect students currently in isolation at Vassar with a positive diagnostic test result or an employee currently not reporting to work because of a positive diagnostic test result. "Active Cases Off Campus" excludes students studying remotely.
Employee Count
Employee count includes family members of employees living with them on campus.
